Living in Spain – first hand experiences

Hi! On these pages I will be writing loose thoughts, experiences and maybe some tips from Spain. I hope they might be of use to someone.

At least they might serve to show that moving to Spain really isn’t that big a deal and it might be worth the effort.
Many posts on these pages might tell about weird things that happen around here, what do I know. But after many years here, I still have to say that the positive outweights the negative experiences by far. Like most people we went here for the sun, but after 3-4 years, the body suddenly seemed to have enough. One spring, out of nowhere, I just didn’t feel like sunbathing anymore. Instead I started acting like the Spanish, walking around in trousers even though it’s nearly 30 C, and wear leather jacket and a scarf when it hovers around 19-20. I guess the body gets accostumed.

What happens instead is that the social life takes over as the major advantage, at least here in Fuengirola. After 20 years in a major city of Sweden where one barely knows the first name of one’s neighbour, it’s very pleasant to almost always bump into some familiar face when taking a stroll.  It’s so much easier to hang out on a restaurant, practicing sports. Thinking of it, you might get to read something about sports on these pages too.

These are the latest posts from the blog, the rest you can find in the menu to the left.
